Fair Elections:

  • Time to Fire FBI Director James Comey If he’s not fired, future campaigns will convince public officials to improperly influence elections again. Since it worked, it will be copied. This was a blatant abuse of his power and a violation of the Hatch Act. Giuliani and everyone in the FBI who was in on it needs to be investigated.

Good morning! We’ve decided to make “links” a daily feature.

The mainstream media has largely abdicated its duty to focus on news that really matters to the American people. During the presidential campaign, they devoted a remarkably small amount of time to the issues. Instead, we received wall to wall coverage on emails and tweets.

There’s a market for substance. Just ask Bernie Sanders, who packed large venues while speaking nothing but policy.

Each day, we will highlight stories about the quality of life in the Great Recession. Soon, we will also start including interviews with middle class and working class Americans about their experiences.

Health Care:

  • What Obamacare-Hating Tom Price’s Appointment Will Mean for Health Care  Twenty million people gained coverage because of the Affordable Care Act. That includes people with preexisting conditions who couldn’t get coverage before. Trump is too smart to not anticipate the uprising that will occur if they don’t get a sufficient replacement. I will say this about Price: He’s one of the few politicians who talks about repealing Obamacare but also has real replacement plans.
  • Women Could Pay More Than Men for Health Care Under Trump The majority of the country will be extremely angry if they get fleeced under Trump’s health care. Women are aware that health care companies have been charging them too much. There’s no justification for the fact that “60 percent of best-selling individual plans in 2009 charged a 40-year-old nonsmoking woman more than a 40-year-old man who smoked, even in plans that didn’t include any type of maternity coverage.”
  • Trump Pledged to Protect Medicare. His Choice for Health Secretary Has Other Ideas. I understand why people are nervous about Prince. However, his appointment does not mean Trump won’t necessarily keep his promise.
